A new Spanish company by the name of Izaro Motors have announced their plans of developing and constructing Spain’s first eco-friendly supercar.
Called the Izaro GT-E, the press release mentions that the car will be available in an electric and hybrid variant. The EV will use an electric motor producing 495hp and has a range of 250 kilometres, while the hybrid system produces 416hp and will have a range of 690 kilometres. Power from the batteries are said to have a lifespan of between 300,000 to 600,000 miles.
The body is said to employ materials such as aluminum and magnesium for the chassis along with high strength steel from the aerospace industry. This produces a car that weighs in at just over 1000 kilograms. Combined with its powertrain, Izaro promises a sprint time of under 4 seconds to 100km/h and a top speed of 280km/h.
It will be priced at 55,000 Euros, which is cheaper than a Tesla Roadster. The company say that this particular pricetag is possible due to the use of cheap and reusable materials such as basalt fibre, instead of the usual carbon fibre. It remains to be seen whether the car will ever materialise into reality, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from dreaming.
